Could somebody please tell me the difference between sub clinical and clinical hyperthyroidism? I have tried to research but either I can't find a definitive answer or my brain just won't let it in because I still don't really know.
My endo mentioned this on the phone whilst discussing my low TSH due to me taking a higher dose of T3 than prescribed(20mcg). He's allowed me to stay on the higher dose pending a blood test in 6 weeks and after this, wants to put it back down to 10mcg and increase my T4 from 50mcg to 75mcg instead.
I'm in the process of trying to write a letter, with all my unanswered questions, research and arguments to his case but it's taken me a week so far and I just can't concentrate. So if anyone could explain this in basic terms I would be grateful. I realise it has something to with what's showing on blood tests to symptoms or no symptoms but that's about it. lol
